Clean energy in Adelaide.

Upstream funded a private power station to make the wine bar 23% sustainable.


We installed a 22 kWP rooftop solar array across all available roof space.



Upstream's fixed energy rate is 26% lower than the grid, delivering immediate energy savings.


The total kg of carbon emissions achieved in the first year.

The solution

he Pink Pig Wine Bar is known for its famous ribs , pork dishes and its award winning steaks that boast many blue ribbons that are displayed throughout the venue.


Established in 1973 this prominent Adelaide icon has been owned and run by the Zacharia family since 1989. Prepared from the freshest local produce the menu is a combination of Mediterranean, Australian and international cuisine with a slow cooked pig on the spit prepared for our guests on most Friday nights to enjoy with a selection from our comprehensive wine menu and bar selection.


After Upstream reviewed the available roof space, we designed and funded the 22kWp solar system along with a treatment for the bar's HVAC system. 


The result was an immediate $4,300 reduction in their energy spend - a solid result considering the Pink Pig had limited space to work from. They enjoy no maintenance requirements and will take ownership of the asset in a few years.


Upstream considers this to be an example of how all energy users can make an impact on their bill, with no capital commitment.
